    Default HK4 Questions?

    I just picked up a really nice 1971, HK4 in 380.
    Opened it up, the old buffer, fell out in pieces.
    I ordered 2 of the red buffers, from the guy here, on HKPRO.

    It also came with a 22LR kit, this is non matching number, to the pistol, but is new in box, with everything.

    I read how the 380 is rough on this gun, aluminum frame and all.

    So, my questions are:
    Do I shoot it in 380?
    Or, put in the 22LR kit?
    Or, look for a .32 kit?

    To swap to .32, is that just the barrel and magazine?

    This is more of a Collector pistol, but would like to shoot it, once in a while.

    Thanks

    I would not shoot this pistol in .380, shoot .32 or .22 only. The frame has been known to crack when shooting .380. The HK4 is more of a collector item now, parts are hard to find and expensive when you do locate them. Of course, if the frame cracks, you are left with a display only item.

    Hi Tony,
    I've been here for 11 years.
    Have several HK's, of course.
    But, they never break or need anything, of course.

    Thinking of looking for a .32 kit, or just the .32 barrel, for starters.
    Are these difficult to obtain?

    Being a member for 11 years and actually being here are 2 different things!!!

    The .32 ACP/7.65 kits are more difficult to find "individually" than the .22 LR/5.6x16 kits!!!
    Check GB and EB, or post in the "WTB: HK PARTS & ACCESSORIES" section.
